. george and cindy got up immediately and walked out of the courtroom. in this trial and all trials the responsibility and pressure lies with the jury. their perspective is unique and binding. during this period of time we were able to contact friends or family or co-workers, were you totally isolated? >> we could use our cell phones and speak to people in a community area were there was always a deputy. we logged all our calls, someone was always listening. >> greta: i have an enormous amount of respect for anyone who serves on a jury. there has been disagreement or criticism of the jury's verdict. they didn't sit through the trial, nonetheless criticism exists. what do you say to those who criticize this jury's verdict? >> they can criticize it, i understand some people might have more of an emotional involvement. that's understandable that they would criticize. that they are emotionally involved it affects them personally. fortunately, they picked people who had no bias. which is equates to a fair trial which everyone in this country deserves. i had no bias. i was not emotionally
defense. its the testimony of her mother cindy that is said to be critical as we head toward the jury deliberations. she testified on the stand last week that in mid march of 2008 she was not at work but at home googling chloroform and chlorophyll on the anthony home computer. her coworkers are expected to testify in the next few hours that their work records show cindy anthony was in fact at work during the key times. prosecutors unearthed more am eugammunition about the testimo. >> they did key word searches based on what she provided in her testimony and there is no reference to those terms even in the unallocated deleted fire fox his reor on the entire hard drive. >> reporter: those computer searches are just as critical for the state as is the evidence of the duct tape. because prosecutors say together they prove casey anthony planned out doping caylee to sleep and suffocated her with that duct tape. that gives the prosecution team what they needed, premeditated murder. that's what the first-degree murder charge is for and that's why casey anthony faces the poe ten aldeath penalt
to be on the table when cindy took the stand and said it was me, i think by the rebuttal proving she lied. not only does it show that they should disregard her, it shows how devastating that evidence is, if she was lying to save her daughter's life, why? because her daughter did the searches and she was thinking about this months before. >> ainsley: is that a home run for the prosecution. >> the case is the presentation and if the jurors are able to pars it out. >> dave: this won't be focus, but toi'm curious about the testimony of her mom. the kid who flipped the bird in the court got six days in jail. so, clearly, the judge wanted to say, hey, listen, i want to make an example of each and every one of you that has done something wrong in moo i courtroom. don't you have to pursue perjury judges. >> i think that she's guilty of perjury, but she's a mother and she gave some of the most crucial evidence for the prosecution based on the 911 calls and the smell of death and linking bags and tape to her home so that she took the stand. >> she's like i lost my granddaughter, i cannot lose my daughter. >>
on rebutting cindy anthony's testimony yesterday. you might remember casey's mother claimed she is the one who did internet searches for chlorophyll and chloroform on the anthony home computer, all this now is going to have to wait, judge perry saying he was going to give the attorneys tomorrow off to prepare closing arguments but now, they're going to have to work. phil keating live in orlando outside the courtroom. these new depositions, are they underway now, phil? >> reporter error jon, in fact they are, right over my shoulder, the courthouse annex in downtown orlando, jose baez, casey anthony's lead attorney, as well as jeff ashton, assistant prosecutor for the state of florida, went into that room and they are now de posing two forensic scientists that the state plans to bring up. as you mentioned, about rebutting the testimony by dr. vernon spitz that the autopsy was done shodly, but also, cindy anthony's former coworkers, casey anthony's mother, who had that shocking testimony last thursday where she said she was at home in mid march 2008 doing those chlorophyll and chloroform searches
was capable of getting into the pool herself, and cindy testified that she believed that the ladder was left in a position that would allow her to go in and drown accidentally. the devil is in the details. it's going to be a lot of nuance and a lot of debate. >> drew, as a reporter and an observer, as you're watching the faces of the people on the jury, she's saying i'm not going to testify, i'm doing it under my own will, what are they doing? what's their reaction? >> there's really not been a lot of reaction from the jury. i think a lot of that is upon the instruction of the judge, but i think they have paid very close attention to testimony. i have noticed a lot of the jurors watch casey anthony a lot, which i think is very interesting. some of them take notes. some of them don't. i have also noticed throughout the trial, they have become friendy with each other. it will be interesting to see who is elected foreman and how the deliberations start going once they get the case. >> all right, now to jim clumeanty, former five profiler, when you have someone on trial like this and they don't
. this blanket was not taken from the home of some stranger. it was taken from the home of george and cindy anthony where cindy and caylee lived. the claim that some stranger abducted caylee anthony was no longer tenable. just as the claim that she had -- just as the claim that caylee was at zani's sleeping, just like the claim that she worked at universal studios, just like the claim that she left caylee at zani's house. one by one those claims died. and by the time caylee's body was found, any suggestion that caylee was kidnapped and murdered by a stranger was gone. there was no question left that caylee anthony died at the hands of someone in that house. when we started this trial, the defense in opening statement made some statements. i want to first, of course, remind you that what the attorneys say, what i say, what defense counsel says is not evidence in this case. the evidence you must decide this case on is what comes from the witness stand or from these exhibits in evidence. in opening statement, defense counsel gave you a very, very detailed explanation, story of how caylee antho

characters in the family who acted weird. you never saw lee in the courtroom. why? you saw george and cindy do strange things in the trial. all of that led to reasonable doubt, and that came to the jury verdict here today. >> and anne and meg, savannah are looking at the twitter traffic and the e-mails and the thing most is the chloroform thing still does not gel or jive well with these people who are twittering or sending out the tweets and what not and also the duct tape. as the prosecutor pointed out who would make an accident look like a murder. this duct tape issue still is i think it is questionable to a lot off people, and that we will hear from the jury and i don't want to second-guess them because they have been away from their families and sacrificed to come to the conclusion, but people are out there saying chloroform was searched here not by cindy anthony and there was duct tape on this child's remains. >> well, the thing is that the defense and the heart-shaped sticker was on there or not there when the picture was take n and the residue and i will tell you that the case had a

[ unintelligible ] you are not required to testify you. i would have been real surprised if the defense would have put her up there. yes there was a large amount of lies. you have to remember, lies started two years prior to caylee's death.
